What Parents Say

Great childcare, great staff, great camp. Love it. It is great to know my child is being looked after by qualified teachers all day, choosing activities they want to choose and at the end of it all they come home with a smile on their face and want to go back again the next day No words can describe how much I would struggle without Sporting Influence being around as a safe, reliable childcare provider in the holidays. My children have tried other camps but love the freedom and choice at Sporting Influence. He never comes home from school and tells me about his day. After a day at Sporting Influence all I hear about is his new friends, the activities that he chose and the how funny Mr Doey is! With my health conditions, I can’t even tell you how important sporting influence is to us. I’m not sure how I would manage through the longer holidays without it. It allows me to rest so I am great for my boys and most importantly it gives the boys a safe, happy place to use up their energy doing the things they love, meet other children and all with fantastic teachers. I can't put into words how important your camps are to our family as part of our holiday times, thank you so, so much!! I can't say enough positive about the staff. I have been impressed every day with how much respect and care that they show to my son. Thanks to such great support, my son was able to really enjoy learning new sports while building confidence. He had such a great time at camp. During what has been an undoubtedly stressful time, the guys at Sporting Influence have been wonderful at providing an outlet for my daughter to blow off some steam and re-connect with other children. I always knew she was safe and am very grateful!! It was my son's first visit to Sporting Influence this summer, so we were unsure exactly what to expect but he thoroughly enjoyed himself and is already asking when he can return, so thank you to all the staff. You do a great job. I think you have done a great job this summer given the current circumstances , well planned and extremely organised camps , I felt very safe and happy to leave my child - he had a great time My boys love coming to Sporting Influence and always have a fab time. You reacted well to the current situation and came across as being super organised. Both my boys aged 9 & 11 absolutely loved their days on the camp & I was very impressed with the organisation & communication Keep up the good work. It’s been fantastic this summer, giving the children some sports, social interaction and a gentle return to routine after an unusual school term. Thanks for all you do. Sporting Influence is the best activity camp we have found for our daughter. We feel reassured that she is in safe hands and is loving every minute. This was my daughter's first time at Sporting Influence. I can not thank you enough, she has really enjoyed it and outstanding service great staff. Will definitely be using again next holidays. Thank you. The childcare provision is excellent, which has remained unchanged despite the issues with coronavirus. Great care has been taken to keep our children safe. I’d like to commend the staff on their communication, welcome and enthusiasm. In the current trying times, SI was the perfect solution for re-integration and re-building of confidence. Thank you The staff are very professional. My daughter has loved being back at Sporting Influence this summer. We have felt it has been a secure and healthy environment. Keep up the good work and we look forward to the next camp. I think you all did a superb job this summer. Despite the stricter protocol there was no compromise taken in other areas. I think it’s really good value for money and my son has always enjoyed it. I think the amount of sport/exercise they do is brilliant as is the team games. My son has continued to enjoy this years' camp and despite Covid, we have felt reassured that all precautions have been taken. He continues to want to attend camp, despite been nearly 14! So glad you are there, we are lucky to have you!
